Episode Narrative Atmospheric conditions for tornadoes developed rapidly in far south central Minnesota the evening of June 21st. During the late afternoon, a very warm and humid air mass lifted northward across northern Iowa, and into far southern Minnesota. Several weak storms formed in northwest and north central Iowa and moved into south central Minnesota where a warm front laid. Winds shifted from the south to the east and southeast across Freeborn and Faribault counties of far south central Minnesota. The combination of increasing wind shear near the boundary layer, and enough lift from thunderstorms, brief tornadoes developed.
Event Narrative Trained spotters observed a narrow funnel cloud east of St Clair and northwest of Pemberton.
